Seattle Immigration Attorney Tahmina Watson Discusses the Start-Up Act

“New immigration laws are essential to address needs for immigrant entrepreneurs,” says Watson in her newest article.

In light of the recent election, and the ensuing discourse on immigration reform, Seattle immigration attorney Tahmina Watson reviews current immigration laws as they pertain to immigrant entrepreneurs.

In her latest article Watson discusses the inadequacies of current visas options for foreigners who want to start new companies in the United States. Watson illustrates the shortcomings of each visa, such as the H-1B, L-1, O-1, E-2, EB-5, and National Interest Waivers. She discusses the complexities and availability of visas for those who are eligible for green cards and why the system is not suitable for entrepreneurs.

She also remarks on the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services Entrepreneurs in Residence program, and its newly revealed Entrepreneur Pathways resource.

Watson argues that the current immigration options are not sufficiently entrepreneur friendly, thereby preventing foreign nationals from starting new companies and creating jobs in the U.S. In her opinion, the Start-Up Act would enable foreign-born entrepreneurs an easier path to green cards in the U.S., and as a result, would generate much needed jobs as well as boost the U.S. economy.
